Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
SELinux is preventing gst-install-plu from making the program stack executable. 

Steps to reproduce:
run totem to play an MP3 file with no MP3 codecs installed, and selinux enforcing.

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-10-07 20:11:54 UTC
I'm not sure why pk-codec-installer needs execstack -- it's a simple C program calling a DBUS method... I'll try doing this with enforcing on tomorrow.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-25 21:00:41 UTC
Probably it loads some gstreamer plugins that need execstack ?

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2008-10-26 16:30:52 UTC
I really can't reprodude -- Matt -- what plugins do you have installed and what is the file format of the file that triggered the PackageKit dialog? Thanks.

Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-10-27 14:10:37 UTC
Can you please provide:

 rpm -qa | grep gstreamer


Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2008-10-27 14:49:51 UTC
Turns out I did have streamer plugins (old ones) instealled in ~/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/.  Removed those, no AVCs.  Downloaded latest MP3 plugin from Fluendo's web site, and it works now with no AVCs.  So an upgrade of the plugins is recommended.

I suspect the release notes should mention to upgrade any previously installed Fluendo MP3 codecs if you run into this problem.  Adding release notes flag.
